Pedroia hurts right hand, more tests set

5/31/2014

BOSTON -- Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia came out of Friday night’s game after batting in the ninth inning with an injury to his right hand.

Sox manager John Farrell said that Pedroia hurt the hand while taking a throw from catcher A.J. Pierzynski on Wil Myers’s steal of second in the fourth inning.

“He landed on the right hand,” Farrell said. “A right hand contusion. The Fluoroscan was negative. Further imaging in the morning."

Pedroia had a hit and a walk in five plate appearances. With runners at first and third and two out in the ninth, he grounded out to third base, then was replaced by Jonathan Herrera in the top of the 10th.
